My dad has a stock 1985 Jeep cj7, (i think its a 246cid) and his lifters make an annoying clicking sound. Its not constant, but like an off and on thing. I was wondering if theres any way to stop this other than to take the block apart and do something. Also, what would one do to fix it if he DID take it apart. Its been happening for a long time, and weve kinda been annoyed. lol thanks guys. :banghead:
What kind of engine is it? (I'm guessing the inline six cyl.) Are you sure its the lifters? It's possible they might be sticking. How many miles are on it?
